Wendy Beveridge and Alexa Hannold Selected To UAVSL All-Conference Team (11/13/17)
(By Coach Chris Schonbachler)
The Upper Allegheny Valley Soccer League announced their 2017 Girls All Conference team. These players are selected by the coaches in the league, no coach can vote for his/her own players. The Clarion Area Lady Cats had 2 of their 5 nominees selected to the team, Wendy Beveridge, junior goalkeeper, and Alexa Hannold, senior forward.
Wendy, who was selected in 2016 as well, had another outstanding season. She faced 5 penalty kicks this season, only allowing 1 goal. She recorded 8 shutouts during the season and was selected as the Defensive MVP at the DCC Nini Manfredo tournament. Wendy also made offensive contributions this year, scoring 9 goals this year, 5 of which were scored in one game.
Alexa earned her first selection this year as the Lady Cat forward/left midfielder. She scored 18 goals this season, leading the Lady Cat team. She also helped her teammates score, recording 12 assists this season. Alexa earned the Offensive MVP at this year’s DCC Nini Manfredo tournament. As one of the team’s captains, Alexa led with her voice as well as her play throughout the season.
The player with the most overall votes is Conference MVP. This year that honor went to Haley Shearer of Karns City. On behalf of the Clarion coaching staff, I’d like to congratulate Wendy, Alexa, and all of the players selected to this year’s All Conference team.
